Do You Eat the Crust?


The other day, I listened as one of my children opined on the superior tastiness of Subway bread relative to the standard loaf we buy for sandwiches at home.  I noted that he often left his bread crusts uneaten at home and didn’t he see the inconsistency in his statement?  He did not understand.  I explained further.  Part of the reason why you like subway bread is that it has more crust.  That is, it has crust around the entire sandwich; the crust to bread ratio is higher.  So, why don’t you leave the crust of your Subway bread?  The answer may simply be in the perception of the bread, and it may be in the relative thicknesses of the crusts in question, but we claim that most breads are improved by their crusts.
